what are these?

Random white hairs scattered all over.
Not the best pictures but best I could do.
I don't know if its a little roaning or just something she is getting in age.
She is a reg chestnut and has no grey in her lines all pals and a few reds.

Have they always been there? Are they all over her body of just in certain places? How old is she?

I did not notice them when I got her back in 2008 if they were. I only started noticing them in the past year. They are scattered in different places all over her body.

Looks like rabicano to me but I'm no expert and I'm most likely wrong LOL

All horses can have a small amount of white hairs in their coat. It occurs more frequently on red horses. It's really quite normal.

That is what I was thinking Chiilaa, no red flags went up I was just curious as to what it was if anything more then just some white hairs.....def was not thinking rabicano either. If it was wouldn't it be more uniformed.

Yes it would be more of a pattern. There's no pics of her whole body so I was going for a long shot

With rabicano, I would expect it to be denser over her barrel. I would also expect it to be denser along the lower part of her barrel (on her belly) and then prgressively get less dense as it goes up her ribs and flanks. I would also expect the hairs in the tail to start forming a coon tail, even a slight one. This horse shows what I mean. The rabicano here is a fairly extreme example, but you can see the pattern it follows.
